On This Date: Beatles Play Final Show at Candlestick Park
It was on this date in 1966 that the Beatles played their final show at Candlestick Park.
August 29, 1966 was pretty much the beginning of the end of the Beatles as they played their final concert at Candlestick Park in San Francisco.
According to the Beatles Bible, Ringo Starr said, “There was a big talk at Candlestick Park that this had got to end. At that San Francisco gig it seemed that this could possibly be the last time, but I never felt 100% certain till we got back to London. John wanted to give up more than the others. He said that he’d had enough.”
The Beatles went on stage about 9:30 and played 11 songs. I dug up some footage from that ill fated night.
